Majority of the Greek organizations at Alabama are housed in on-campus, freestanding houses located on University property. Houses sleep anywhere from 16 to 80 members and most facilities have a live-in house director, who manages the day-to-day functions for the house. Since 2005, UA has played an instrumental role in assisting Greek organizations with the construction of 21 new housing facilities and the renovation of 10 existing facilities that include life safety features. Four facilities are currently in the construction and/or renovation phase with expected completion dates varying from spring 2018 to fall 2018 and one additional new facility is in the design and planning stage.
At the present time, there are 46 Greek housing facilities, of which, 10 are operated by UA and the remaining 36 are operated by the individual chapter house corporations. Title to the real estate on which a chapter house is built and the chapter house itself is vested in the University. As such, the University retains authority and jurisdiction over the real estate and chapter houses. Currently, 28 fraternities and 18 sororities have on-campus housing facilities. Furthermore, approximately 1,637 students resided in Greek housing facilities for fall 2017.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding Greek housing, please contact Julie Elmore, Manager of Greek Housing and Properties, at 205-348-2693 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
